message 2: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Howdy, everyone! I'm excited to meet and work with a new group of people. It's always fun to do group challenges.

I'd like to say right off the bat that I would rather not be leader, so hopefully someone else doesn't mind.

Name suggestions:
Five Fabulous Friends
Five Fangirls

Gung ho gals
Gregarious Girls

I'm stopping while I'm ahead because I have no good names really. LOL Hopefully I can think better tomorrow when I'm fresh or one of my partners can think of a good one.


message 3: by Susan (new)

Susan (jazzescrapper) | 2188 comments Hi there, I'm Susan and I also would rather NOT be team leader. Normally I don't mind but I have a new grandson who lives with me. He is 2 weeks old and I also help with his 2 year old brother. My son and wife live with us so needless to say we are still finding our groove with a new baby. I normally step up to things like this but I am afraid I would let you all down. I will think about a team name and let you know my suggestions too.


message 4: by Sarah B (new)

Sarah B (sab55) Hi guys, I don't mind be team leader if no one else wants to do it but I've never done this challenge before so if anybody else wants to do it thats fine with me. I'll think about suggestions for team names :)


message 5: by Cara (new)

Cara (caramariew) | 404 comments I do not want to be team leader either. I like the name Gung ho Gals though :)


message 6: by ☆☆Hannah☆☆, The Book Junkie (new)

☆☆Hannah☆☆ | 7247 comments It's not real hard to be team leader. Everyone is responsible to post in here what books and the points they will get. Basically all you have to do is copy it to the Claim the points thread. I will mark Sarah as team leader.


message 7: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Thank you for stepping up for us, Sarah. : )


message 8: by Susan (new)

Susan (jazzescrapper) | 2188 comments Thank you Sarah. I never mind stepping up but with a new baby and a 2 year old I have had my hands full and would hate to let anyone down. Thank you again for stepping up to team leader.


message 9: by Sarah B (new)

Sarah B (sab55) Okay sounds good. So now we just have to come up with a name.

How many points is that one worth, Cara?

At least 9. I'm not sure about the bonus words yet.


message 14: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I hope you find most or all of the bonus words. I'm so busy this weekend, I don't know when I'll have time to hunt down a good book with good points. I think this might be the week I just read and let the points fall where they may. I thought of one book and it had ONE point, unless it has the bonus words. LOL I'm not reading that one for this challenge. LOL

I hope you love your book!


message 15: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Okay, so this is a Valentine's edition, so I didn't even think of that when I was trying to think of names. LOL

I'll think about it and see if I can come up with something and post tomorrow (Sunday), but it would be during the evening. Anyone else have any ideas for our group name?


message 16: by ☆☆Hannah☆☆, The Book Junkie (new)

☆☆Hannah☆☆ | 7247 comments I like Gung Ho Gals too. If that's okay with everyone I will our name to that.

Hidden Words: sick, kid, war, rescue (4 points)

I found revenge in the book 4 times, but I'm not sure it's what the plot is about. It would be cool if I could claim another 3 points but I doubt it.
